Information and Broadcasting, and Youth Affairs and Sports Minister Anurag Thakur experienced AR Rahman's virtual reality film Le Musk at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. A picture of Anurag sitting in an immersive chair (specially designed for the film) and donning a VR set is making the rounds of social media.

Le Musk is part of Cannes XR, a segment of the Cannes Film Market focusing on cinematographic content that uses immersive technologies.

"Le Musk is a technical masterpiece with inter-disciplinary expertise coming together from around the world," the minister commented after his immersive experience.

The minister also delivered the keynote address on India: The content hub of the world at the India Forum, where he said, "The advent of AI, virtual reality, and immersive technology such as the metaverse presents immense possibilities to India's IT-enabled services and IT-skilled workforce."

Earlier, the minister began his address by saying, "I stand here before you honoured to represent a civilisation that is over 6,000 years old, a youthful nation of over 1.3 billion Indians, and the world's largest film industry that produces over 2,000 films annually."

And he added, "India's red carpet presence captured the diversity of its cinematic excellence not only in terms of representation of actors and filmmakers from various languages and regions but also the OTT platforms."
